Description

Cirque du Soleil® invites you to IRIS, a Journey Through the World of Cinema. This large-scale production – created exclusively for the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles – offers a new take on the art of cinema as only Cirque du Soleil could imagine it. IRIS is an inventive spectacle that combines acrobatics, dance, projections and live music. The show takes the audience on a mesmerizing journey that blurs boundaries between live performance and moving images. IRIS plunges spectators into the heart of the movie-making process, from illustration to animation, black and white to colour, into a world of shadows and light. The story unfolds as two young heroes venture through a universe that brings to life a succession of cinematic genres. Join acclaimed choreographer/director Philippe Decouflé and Oscar-nominated composer Danny Elfman on this fantastic voyage breathtakingly unfurled with 72 performers.
